The advent of a hyper-connected society has resulted in a new type of cybercrime that never existed. Such new cybercrimes are difficult to predict based on hyperconnectivity and superintelligence. It is also difficult to identify the damage and method of cybercrimes. The new cybercrimes cause emotional, psychological and ethical damage as well as economic and industrial damage. Despite these threats, however, there is insufficient systematic research into the causes and countermeasures of new cybercrimes.

From a convergence perspective, this study seeks to collect specific cases of new cybercrime and analyze its nature by classifying its type. To this end, the scope of this research is limited to new cybercrimes, which are highly disruptive, have a high degree of violence-inflicted, and are highly technical.

This study ultimately aims to shed light on the reality and nature of new cybercrimes, while drawing out effective measures to prevent and respond to new cybercrimes, and restoring and building a sound cyber ecosystem that members can safely use.
